Both the 7 and 7 Pro run Oxygen OS, OnePlusâ€™ proprietary Android skin. Oxygen OS is known for fast updates that come for a very long time, so be sure to bookmark this page and visit often.

OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro updates
- Current stable version: Android 10
- When will the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro get Android 11? September 2020 (estimated)
The OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro launched on May 14, 2019, with the then-latest version of Android, Android 9 Pie. Itâ€™s expected both devices will receive at least two major Android updates in the future.
Unlocked variants of the two phones started receiving Android 10 in late September, though many users didnâ€™t see the OTA for weeks after before OnePlus quietly shelved it due to a few pesky bugs. The rollout began anew in mid-October as OxygenOS version 10.0.1.
At the end of December, the Android 10 update for the T-Mobile variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro finally began rolling out. The update came in as Oxygen OS 10.0.1 and included the November 2019 security patch. Unlocked 7 Pro models are on Oxygen OS 10.3.0, although itâ€™s not clear which features the T-Mobile update is missing, if any.
OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G will eventually be upgraded to OxygenOS 10 â€” though users will have to wait until Q1 2020 to see it.
What did 2020 bring so far?
Right after the beginning of the new year, OnePlus released the latest Oxygen OS Open Beta 8 builds for OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro users. This update brought several bug fixes including touch screen optimizations and camera performance tweaks as well as the December security patch.
In mid-February, OnePlus released the Oxygen OS Open Beta 9 build and Oxygen OS 10.3.1 stable update for the OnePlus 7 Pro. Both updates include several bug fixes, tweaks, and Januaryâ€™s security patch.Â
In March, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G was also updated to the stable version of Android 10. This exclusive version of Oxygen OS 10 landed as a 2GB+ download and its changelog was the same as the one for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro Android 10 update.
Later in the month, the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro got the new Oxygen OS Open Beta 10 update. According to a post on the OnePlus Forums, the update included the February 2020 security patches as well as some bug fixes and system optimizations.
The Open Beta 11 update followed shortly thereafter, bringing the March 2020 security update, as well as the Instant Translation feature. This function translates audio in video calls to the native language of users, supporting English, French, German, Hindi, and Chinese.
March 2020 was also the month when OnePlus 7 Pro 5G devices on Sprint finally got updated to Android 10. Not long after, the EU variant saw the OxygenOS 10.0.5 OTA, which introduced general bug fixes and tweaks.
On the last day of the month, OnePlus released the stable OxygenOS 10.3.2 update with the March 2020 security patch in tow for the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. This brought improved RAM management, slow-mo recording stability, video playback fluidity, and more.
The firm released the Open Beta 13 update on May 8, bringing dirty camera lens notifications, the April 2020 security patch, and various fixes.
The OnePlus 7 series is expected to see Android 11 in 2020. Itâ€™s possible that it will also receive an update to Android 12 in 2021, as the OnePlus 3T received three updates during its lifespan (to Nougat, Oreo, and Pie).
